Cougar Minos X5 and the Revenger S Mouse Review
Today on the slab are two of Cougar’s new mice, the Minos X5 and the Revenger S. Both mice feature high-end gaming specs, a 3360 sensor, 2000Hz polling rate, Omron switches, six programmable buttons, macro recording, onboard memory, under 100g weight, and of course, RGB lighting. RGB all-the-things is alive and well.
I tend to keep mice forever. In my 30+ years in gaming and computing, I’ve owned and used just 5 mice, all of them Logitech, from a 3-button bus mouse to an MX518. When Cougar sent along the Minos X5 and Revenger S for review, I wasn’t particularly enthusiastic. However, since my trusty Logitech MX518 had been getting more and more issues with the sensor and its grips, it started looking like an upgrade was in my future.
But of course, choosing the right mouse for your type of grip and use is very important. The last thing you want to do is aggravate a wrist problem, or cause a repetitive strain injury. Both the Minos X5 and Revenger S take ergonomics seriously.
In the highly competitive world of gaming mice, are Cougar’s new mouses up to the challenge?
